COARE is proud to have co-authored a "thought starter" document outlining a multi-layered approach to a global convention ("international treaty") to address the epidemic of plastic pollution.

This document and concept were originally presented at the Second Meeting of the Ad-hoc Open Ended Expert Group on Marine Litter and Microplastics in Geneva in December, and paves the way for further discussion at the UN Environment Assembly taking place in Nairobi this month (March 2019).
